Abstract: The report ends with a synthesis of the evaluation, and a posteriori analysis of this operation by the people in charge of research today (i.e. Ahmed El Hattab and Said Belcadi); they present the lessons retained by the Ministère Délégué à la Recherche Scientifique (Moroccan Ministry for Scientific Research), and the results that followed. This report appears just at the right time. The question of the role and usefulness of the scientific system is an up-to-date one. Genuine financial and resource efforts have been laid out in Morocco. However, what is at stake is not only a question of mobilising means but also of structuring research - not only institutions but links with society, motivation, human resources and, finally, imagination for choosing relevant and anticipating niches. This a constant concern of the Académie Hassan II des Sciences et des Techniques (Sciences and Technologies Academy of Morocco), which, among other missions, has to contribute to defining the general orientations of scientific and technological development of the country.
